Online Educational Offerings

Members of the Society for Pediatric Radiology (SPR) have access to view and complete online educational activities. SPR currently provides monthly journal-based CME articles as well as on-demand CME and non-CME activities.  The goal of the SPR leadership is to continue to grow the Society’s online educational offerings and provide members easy access to pediatric radiology education. 

One of the first steps in executing the online library was to implement the Society's first LMS (learning management system), XPress.  As the migration process continues to unfold, you will find that some activities are still administered via the online platform, HighMarks.  In an effort to streamline the process for you, this page is segmented in such a way that allows you to easily identify where the activities are housed. 


Not an SPR member?  No problem.  Some content in XPress is available via open-access.  All other offerings are available for a nominal fee.  If you are interested in becoming a member of the SPR, click here.
 

If you need assistance or have any questions, please contact the SPR office at spr@acr.org, or by phone at (703) 648-0680. 

CME Gateway

SPR members have access to the CME Gateway. The CME Gateway allows members to view and print results of CME credits earned through several participating societies.  It may take up to 60 days for the educational activity you participated in to be posted on the Gateway.  

To access your record, visit www.cmegateway.org. If this is your first time to the Gateway, you will be asked to create a username and password - these may be whatever you choose. Once you are in the Gateway, access your SPR CME records by selecting "Participating Organizations" and registering your SPR username and password with the site.  Once you have done that, you may choose "Individual Participating Organizations Reports" from the menu and enter the criteria you want to view and/or print.
